I always stay at this hotel every time I visit Zimbabwe. They have tried their best to maintain it to a good standard despite the economic meltdown being faced in Zim.

Probably one of the best place to stay in Harare. The staffs are great and rooms are cozy. Although the north block gets a bit cold during the evening.

Conveniently located in the Centre this Hotel offers plenty of rooms in several wings. Breakfast was decent and the overall experience good.

I have stayed in Meikles a lot of times in the past. This hotel is considered one of the finest in Africa. And it was! A really 5 stars’ hotel. But this place changes a lot from the days off old. Buffet isn’t value for money. Breakfast is bad for a luxury hotel. Very poorly maintained rooms. The main restaurant...

Lovely hotel with very professional staff. Comfortable room, great variety at breakfast with attentive staff. The hotel is very large, so it was quite a distance to get to breakfast. A building with history!
